My last post for a while. (Just need a bit of a rest away from computer, but I have a new toy so hopefully I'll get back with some better images soon). Smile

Thank you for looking.

That onion has such presence and personality. Mono is menacing and color is some exotic sea creature. I like them both.

I love both of these, Chris, but the colour version gets the vote. Wonderful curves and perfectly presented. Don't be away too long Smile Carol

What an interesting comparison. I love the glossy, slivery green of the leaves in V2, but V1 conveys the whole as a single entity, and as Joline says it's quite menacing. Certainly alive and moving.
A new toy? What fun, hope it's photographic!

V1 is very sinuous and spooky. V2 is exceelent but I'll go for the sinister V1.
